    I can say i have been in better hotels but i have also been in worse. This was not my first choice but for what i paid it isn't to bad. The room is clean, bed comfortable, great location. The only problems i have are 1. I was told they offer a contential breakfest, bit all it was were muffins the size of a 1/2 dollar and coffee and 2. The valet parking is horrible, it takes at lest 20 min. to get your car and then they still expect a tip when the front desk had to call more than once to see if someone was coming. By the way the self park isn't close by so if you are by yourself ladies you may have to valet park. Otherwise it is nice and as close as it is to Bourbon St. it is pretty quiet.

    I can't really hate this hotel.. The extra charges were stupid.. Internet never worked.. hotel didn't have a liquor license so the drink special was useless.. but they reversed the charges without a question. The elevator is out of the tower of terror.. the fire alarm on the 3rd floor was pulled.. but silent.. But the bed was comfortable.. the TV worked.. the bathroom was clean. As a place to shower, change, and sleep off a night on the town you couldn't ask for better for the price. I'd never spend more than $50 a night but I would definitely go back there when I visit the city if I needed a cheap generally quiet place to crash. Oh and dig the smell when the elevator comes down into the lobby.. you won't get THAT at no full service hotel ;)

    This hotel has decent rooms nothing special but not horrible.   staff is extremely unhelpful and unfriendly. They did nothing about our noisy neighbors who at 3 am would start kicking the doors and yelling in the halls for 3 nights. The hotels walls are paper thin and EVERY noise can be heard. We came during mardi gras and had asked the hotel to make sure we had a cab to get us to the airport. The hotel told us we would have a cab at 3:30 waiting for us. NO arrangements were made and  the front desk could not tell us where to get a cab from and recommended walking through the streets with our luggage, which is insane. I can absolutely understand that getting around is tough and people are loud and partying but the management staff did nothing to assist or help. The hotel looks like a nice hotel from the website but is nothing more then a mediocre hotel with a bad attitude. Find somewhere else to stay you have so many options in new orleans!

    I loved this place - small but a perfect location.
    Crawling distance from the action on Bourbon Street.
    When I return, I will stay here!

    This hotel was nothing less than amazing. The staff (Tania, Leila, Lenell, and Shawn) were extremely courteous and helpful. They were fun and silly and always laughing when we would joke around with them. The bar was quiet and a great place to meet others who were staying in the hotel or to meet up with friends before hitting Bourbon Street. That said, nothing could prepare us for the amazing outdoor heated salt water pool. No joke, we spent at least three hours in it every single night of the four nights we were there! The pool is absolutely what made this vacation perfect. We had a bunch of friends staying at the Hilton, and they came over to our hotel every night because (A) our location was much better and (B) THE POOL! We were hooked. I think I'm still having withdrawals since we left! I read reviews that told us to request a room away from the elevator and facing the courtyard (and we received what we requested), but I don't see how any room in this hotel would have been a bad one. Price wise, we were debating between this hotel and the Ramada on Bourbon. My parents stayed there a few months before and really liked it. My husband and I are into supporting local small businesses, so I took a chance that this boutique-style hotel would be better than the corporate-run Ramada, and boy were we right. The location was perfect, as was our hotel. And we didn't ever hear a peep of sound from Bourbon Street. Granted, we didn't get to our hotel until 3am at the earliest every night, but we had no problems sleeping in until noon the next day. This is the only place I'll stay from now on!!

    We debated on where to stay when visiting NOLA and wanted to stay in the French Quarter.  My husband is a fanatic about researching hotels so we decided to stay at Hotel Le Marais.

    A boutique hotel with staff that is friendly and very accomodating.  The rooms are small with low ceilings but since the entire hotel (including guest rooms, and bathrooms) has been renovated that makes up for small rooms.  The hotel is essentially brand new from common areas to all the guest rooms (furniture, bedding, etc...).

    The pros:  Clean, new, helpful/friendly staff, walking distance to everything, reasonably priced.  Oh, and an on-site gym and dipping pool to help work off the excess lbs you will likely pack on with all of the good food that NOLA has to offer.

    The (potential) cons:  The doors to the guest rooms do not keep sound out, so it can get noisey depending upon where your room is located.  I suggest away from the elevators if noise bothers you.  Shower is an open shower (meaning no curtain, so you may be a little cold if you step into the shower with the bathroom door open), and there isn't a tub (not a big deal to me, but it could be a deal breaker for some).  Currently you can't order movies in the room (not sure if they're going to change this or not), but they have a LOT of stations.  No mini bar in the room, but come on - you're in New Orleans and there are SEVERAL bars within stumbling distance.

    I would definitely return to Hotel Le Marais.

    The hotel was a great choice to wait out the power outages in the city after Hurricane Isaac.  The king size bed was super comfy, as were the pillows.  The TV was positioned very nicely, and the decor was modern without feeling cold.  We will definitely stay here again, or have family stay here when they come into town!  Thanks for making our non-electricity days into a mini-vacation!

    Really nice hotel! Cool salt water pool, nice staff. Real pretty rooms--can't even hear Bourbon St even though it's only a block away! Caught a great deal here through BookIt.com - came with a Jazz Brunch at Court of two sisters- that was awesome! Valet way too pricey

    This is cross posted from my Trip Advisor review but I just wanted to post it here as well since I really enjoyed Hotel LeMarais!:

    I booked our June 2011 stay at Hotel Le Marais back in January 2011 after finding an excellent deal on expedia.ca . Around Feb-Mar we started seeing some bad reviews show up saying people had been turned away after booking months in advance. Naturally I was completely freaked out by this - we'd been looking forward to our trip for so long and had saved up for it. Fortunately, we worried for nothing!

    I emailed (and tweeted) the hotel a few times prior to our trip and was assured we'd be fine. Still, I worried. We showed up at the hotel on Friday morning around 11am. There was a TINY snag when our friends got assigned an already occupied room (woops!) but other than that everything was wonderful. Our rooms were ready promptly, were clean and quiet and safe. This was our first time staying in the French Quarter (previously stayed in the CBD) and we worried it might be noisy but despite being right off of Bourbon Street, this hotel is super quiet!

    The hotel is newly renovated and is gorgeous in a modern boutique hotel style. Upon check-in you are given a coupon for a free drink at the hotel bar and all of the staff members are friendly and helpful. Pierre at the front desk was a big help to our group - offering restaurant suggestions and best taxi routes when we headed uptown. The beds are giant and super comfortable - I slept like the dead every night (although I may have had help from Pat O'Brian's hurricanes). You also get complimentary bottle of water in your room (hard to find hotels that don't charge you $8 a bottle these days!) and my husband and I even got a complimentary box of pralines in our room! THANK YOU Hotel staff! There is also a large flat screen tv (we hardly turned it on..hellooo, not on vacation to watch tv!) and an ipod dock in case you wanted to listen to some tunes while you get ready for the day. There is a jar of free ginger snap cookies at the front desk should you feel snacky while you wait for your taxi. The wifi in the hotel can be spotty at times but works well for the most part.

    We usually went out (or slept through) breakfast but we did eat at the hotel twice and I can say I haven't seen such a fantastic free breakfast spread at any hotel I have ever stayed at. Fresh fruit, Community brand coffee, yogurt, cereal, delicious crispy real bacon, sausage patties, all manner of breads and bagels and english muffins, scrambled eggs..EVERYTHING! All for free! We appreciated this very much on our check out day as we had to be at the airport early.

    The hotel also boasts a nice little quiet courtyard with pool. The courtyard is gorgeous but we did not use the pool as it was soooooo hot in New Orleans when we were there and the pool is a heated saltwater pool. Who cares though, we didn't come to New Orleans to swim! I bet that pool would be fantastic in Feb-March!

    The location is great as well, nestled just off of Bourbon street yet very very quiet. Since this was not our first time in New Orleans we did not go to Bourbon street but still found the location ideal for everything we wanted to see and do.

    All in all I would definitely stay at the Hotel Le Marais again and would recommend it to anyone. If we can get a good deal on expedia again we will be back sooner than later!

    Amazing! Describes the hotel, the staff, the ambiance. The only reason I didn't put 5 stars is because our view wasn't the best and the bathroom door didn't close. So worth staying here though. Having a few beers while soaking in the heated pool in 50° weather just off of Bourbon is perfect!

    I was extremely pleased with my stay at Hotel Le Marais. The hotel was located PERFECTLY just South of Bourbon St and made for a very easy walk to the VooDoo Museums, Jackson Square, and the streetcar lines.

    I was also impressed with the style and cleanliness of the hotel. It was wonderfully modern and had all the amenities I needed. They even include free bottled water! The courtyard with saltwater pool was quaint (not for kids swimming, more of a "drinking pool") and the exercise area was extremely clean and useful.

    The rooms themselves are small, but very well laid out and all the furniture was new. Excellent TV selection, and the linens were always clean.

    My only complaints are really negligible. First, there is no working door on the showers, sometimes resulting in spillage onto the floor. Second, our room on the top floor had a strange "wall of sound" in one corner that could have been the air handler sitting on top of the roof. We tuned this out after an hour or two. I think we had a rushed maid one day as well, as our bed was hastily made and we were missing a few towels (this was only one day out of seven, so we excused it). However, my chief complaint is that the doors are THIN. Though the hotel itself is very quiet, we could hear EVERYONE who passed our door, and sometimes were alarmed because we thought people were opening our door when, in fact, it was the room adjacent to ours. We got in the habit of deadbolting our door. Housekeeping was noisy, but they definitely respected the nifty "Do Not Disturb" light under the room number we controlled from the inside of the room and responded quickly and efficiently when we asked for maid service.

    All in all, a positive experience! I would definitely suggest this hotel to young adults and groups, though I don't think this is the best hotel to bring noisy kids to as there is not much for them to do other than  watch TV.

    I will definitely be using this hotel as my go-to for all of my stays in New Orleans! You really can't ask for better at their prices in the French Quarter during the busy season. Book now, there aren't too many rooms!

    We stayed here for our trip to NOLA. The decor is very modern and beautiful. The room was obviously a little small, but that is fine with me. The staff were pretty helpful and kind. The bedding wasn't very clean. I found a person's snot on my bedding. My sister found a lot of hairs in her bedding. We asked them to change the bedding, but she still had hairs in her bed. Along with booking the hotel room, they gave us complimentary 3 drink from the bar and 2 tickets for a Jazz Brunch at The Court of Two Sisters. The parking across the street was pretty expensive. We ended parking in another parking lot a few blocks away for a much cheaper price. The pool is amazing at night! I loved coming down there to soak my feet after a long day of walking and bar hopping. It is also so close to bourbon street! You can't hear any of the noise, but you can easily walk down there at night. You can easily walk down to the French Market as well during the day. I would really recommend this hotel.

    FYI: We paid about $200 a night.

    This was a gem of a hotel in the center of New Orleans. The saltwater pool in the courtyard, two complimentary drinks at the bar upon our arrival + breakfast in the morning was such a splendid bonus!

    This place has undergone a MASSIVE, much-needed renovation.  I highly recommend.  Everything looks new, chic and modern.  

    Memorable features:

    1. The softness, awesomeness of the bed.   I melted into it.  Was I really drunk?  Yes, but it was nice.  I noticed it even half-sober (Is there such a state of being?)

    2. Location, location, location.  Conti is perpendicular to Bourbon street in the French Quarter.  Perfect placement as we were in the middle of everything, but far enough away to not HEAR everything.  :)

    Free complimentary cocktail ticket upon check-in.  Hell yeah!

    3. Fantabulous receptionist named Tania.  She rocked.  

    4. Massive flat-panel LG TV.

    5. Cute bathroom

    6. Excellent service.  

    Get it together, people.  Go to their website.  It's a whole new hotel.  It's amazing what a renovation can do.  :D

    I stayed here last Saturday. This place is great!

    The location could not be better. It is about 100 feet off of Bourbon Street on Conti. It is a short walk from Jackson Square.

    The rooms are luxurious and comfortable.

    The staff is friendly and helpful.

    The continental breakfast is a little more than that. It included eggs, bacon, sausage, and the standard fixings.

    The only thing that I can say that is negative is the elevator is a little slow.

    3.9.2012 Recent reviews look good for this hotel and the name has changed. If ever in the area again, I will have to see what's up~

    NEVER AGAIN!!! Worst hotel experience ever!
    When I found out what hotel we were staying in, I came straight to Yahoo to read up on some reviews and let me tell you, St. Ann lived up to the rating it received. The AC was out 3 of the 4 days we were there. Need I say more? The Deluxe King is NOT! The carpet was damp and icky! The only good thing about it was Bruce, who was very pleasant and helpful. There were a couple of room attendants that were also helpful. There were couples arguing and the room construction...I will never forget this experience and for all the wrong reasons~ Someone mentioned you would have to be drunk the whole time to stay there~ I was wishing I were~

    The nice thing about this hotel is that it looks exactly like its photos. Major plus. Contemporary, tropic feeling. The indoor bar is sexy. Plush seating, nice bathrooms. We reserved the double deluxe suite. Nice big comfy. REPEAT: Looks like the photos!

    For the most part, the staff is friendly and my favorite concierge by far is BARON. Ask for him before anyone else if you enjoy less passive resistance. Also, the front desk person on his cell phone when you just took a sweaty cab ride to a promised early check-in ( that you actually did not get fulfilled) is an irritant when jet-lagged. You will know who this is right away. I repeat: Ask for BARON.

    Continental breakfast includes whole fruits, and not the chopped up stuff that I am used to with melons and strawberries. They serve apples, oranges, and bananas with bacon, sausage, breads, muffins, tea, coffee, juice.

    The salt pool is a dream. HEATED as in jacuzzi temps. I loved spending many laps in there with the peacefulness of the courtyard away from the noise around the corner on the famous Bourbon Street. Baron brings you towels if he sees that you need them. Loved it! The hotel bar doesn't open until 3PM, so if you are thirsty, stock your room fridge or wander around with the other early drinkers in the French Quarter. Bring your drinks back to the pool. :-)

    Travel: Close to everything! Can walk, horse buggie, or Street Car to everything including other districts of New Orleans outside the French Quarter.

    Free WiFi: IT SUCKS. REALLY REALLY SUCKS. That's all I have to say about that.

    Room Food Service: None. But I was okay with that, considering there is food and drinks everywhere in the Quarter. Grab extra juices and water during breakfast.

    Business Service: Eh. No stamps either. Luckily we found a post office not too far away. And luckily I was not here on a work ticket.

    Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back. It's close enough to all the debauchery when wanted, and private enough when you want to get a good quiet night's sleep. And the air conditioning is like a meat locker, which is awesome during the hot sticky humid days down in N'Awlins. For the price, I am satisfied with what I got. Just wish they would fix this crappy WiFi so I wouldn't have to write my hotel review via my AT&T data plan.

    Just spent two nights here, and the location can't be beat. It was close to the action of Bourbon street, but we didn't hear any noise from it in the hotel. It also felt pretty safe, and you needed a room card to get into the elevator. We were next to the ice machine mentioned in a few reviews, but hardly heard it. I didn't try the Wi-Fi, but my sister did say it was pretty bad. The breakfast was pretty good, a step above a typical complimentary. It didn't have a French Quarter "feel" to it, but we enjoyed staying here.

    It's been almost a year since my life changing visit to New Orleans and I cannot believe I hadn't reviewed this place.

    For what it is, how much it was, and where it is located, this place ain't too shabby. Our room was a great size for 2, could probably fit 4 in comfortably as well if you're on a budget. The location was amazing. Right off of Bourbon Street in the French Quarter so everything was within walking distance. Shops, restaurants, tours, bars-- bada bing bada boom, walk out the lobby and all the action is right in front of your face.

    NOLA buildings aren't brand new or anything and this isn't the Ritz Carlton, so don't expect marble floors and a mini fridge in your room. A bed, a chair, a table and a mirror is all you really need. Who coops themselves up in their hotel room while on vacation anyway? Only losers do. There is so much to see in New Orleans, turning on your tv or opening up your netbook/lappy would be a crime.

    Next time I hit up NOLA, I'm definitely staying here again.

    Conveniently located with many things to see, world class delicious things to eat and do within short walking distance. Rooms were very clean with comfortable beds, nice showers, decent bath products and relatively quiet. On the modern side, so not for those who want really french quarter flavor in their lodgings.  We had only positive interactions with the staff and housekeeping. Continental breakfast had eggs and bacon, otherwise pretty standard. We would stay again.

    Upscale and right in the heart of the madness, the Hotel Le Marais provided a welcome respite from some of the crazy happening at other nearby hotel recently during Tales of the Cocktail. Comfy beds, passes the robe test (as in does the room come with one), and a pretty nifty (if not technologically marvelous) approach to the Do Not Disturb sign, namely, a button you hit on the inside of your room that connects to a light below your room number. Simple. Efficient.

    The bar staff was super helpful, and depending on who you got, the front desk was too. I even (somehow) managed to work in a workout, and the fitness room, though boutique, had enough going on in there that I was able to get my heart pumping a little. The pool area is downright striking, and it really does feel like a little oasis in the middle of the Quarter there. This was my first time to stay at the Le Marais, but I'm sure of this much - I'll be back.

    Very clean hotel with very friendly staff.  My only complaint is that during my visit, the bar never seemed to be open while I was awake/not checking out the dive bars.  

    The hotel has a more modern feel that other NOLA hotels I've stayed at.  Walking into the lobby felt almost like walking into a club with the blue and pink lights.  It was a quiet hotel for the most part and I'd definitely go back.

    LOVED this hotel. LOVED the staff. Loved the location. Loved the room. Loved the courtyard. Loved everything.

    Rooms were well appointed, and quiet.
    As a virgo... I am a serious clean freak. This hotel was immaculately clean, the room, the lobby, the courtyard, and the pool.

    The place doesn't serve food except for free continental breakfast, but there is several places for food steps away from the front door.

    The Staff was so on the ball and polite, it was amazing. Especially after watching a friend deal with  check in at her hotel the St. Marie and they were completely unorganized, and absolutely rude to everyone who was upset at the front desk because their rooms were all messed up. I watched for several hours in the lobby one incident after another. So I found even more appreciation for the great staff at the front desk at my hotel.

    The lobby was so incredibly cute. All colorful with blue, purple and pink lighting inside and outside. Let me just tell you how nice that is when you stumble into your hotel at 5am completely sh*t faced.

    The cute bar was a good start for a start out drink, bartender was kewl and friendly just like everyone we encountered at the hotel.

    By far this will be where I stay every time I go back to New Orleans.

    I've stayed at the Marriott before but it doesn't have NOLA charm and it's on Canal so there's more walking, this time we wanted a hotel in the french quarter and we wanted something completely remodeled not some 200 year old hotel with thin walls and cockaroaches. This place was a beautiful boutique hotel that had great personality.

    Clean freaks, my gay boys, city slickers and snobs would love this place!

    PS about the nice touches
    - Free Internet in the rooms is a definite plus! you would have to reset it every once in a while but not a huge problem if you're on vacation. If you're trying to do business might be a bit annoying.

    - Free bottles of water.

    - Free continental breakfast wasn't just rolls and coffee. It included, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, english muffins, bagels, oatmeal, grits, coffee, various flavored creamers, orange juice, apple juice, cranberry juice and bottle water

    - Two complimentary drink tickets when you checkin for their bar. Be sure to check the expiration date on it, or confirm at the front desk when you get them. The tickets were for any drink at the bar, so that was very nice.

    - No paper do not disturb and housekeeping signs. You simply press a button in your room that lights up one of the signs out side of your door. The rooms also have door bells so no annoying knocking. Very pleasant.

    - The beds were very comfy. Linens were very crisp, clean and nice.

    - The rooms had a docking station with speakers for your iphone, ipod, etc so you can play music. No need to bring additional speakers.

    - The rooms also had electronic safes for your valuables.

    - Also for my security which I liked in a very party town, you used your room key to accessed the elevator from the lobby. So not just anyone can get up to the room levels. I did like that, and felt safer.

    Minor complaints: The shower did not have a door so the floors got wet ALOT. I did fix the annoyance by placing folded up towels by the doorway of the shower so it wouldn't reach the floor. Just ask for more towels for the shower situation.  It would also be nice to have a tub too. Though I did know the hotel did not have a tub when I booked it, and felt the hotel and my room was worth the lack of not relaxing in a tub on vacation.
    - We sleep in very late because we're usually out partying to the sun comes up. Which means we're sleeping when housekeeping is doing their thing. Our only complaint is that the first two days, you could hear housekeeping outside of our door talking loud etc. Though thank god we didn't hear them for the rest of the week. We did buy ear plugs cause we're reasonable people who believe that there is certain noises you will hear in any hotel stay especially if you sleep in.

    Loved this hotel.  This adorable boutique hotel was a jewel.  Perfect location to all the wonderful restaurants in the FQ.  The front desk people as well as the doorman were so friendly and helpful.  We felt right at home.  Grand experience, super place, wildly entertaining.  LOVED THIS HOTEL!!   A big thank you to the staff.

    Stayed 3 nights.  Can't beat the location.  Close to everything.  Staff very nice and helpful.  Room clean and neat.  Nice bar with decent wine and speciality drinks.  Our first 2 nights we had a room with a balcony overlooking Conti Street, which I wouldn't recommend for light sleepers.  Many delivery trucks arrive EARLY on the street in the mornings and you can easily hear the commotion.  I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    So I haven't actually stayed here (yet), but I did get a chance to check out one of the premium guest rooms, and I've seen the pool, the courtyard, the fitness room, the business center and the conference room. As such, I feel qualified to write this review.

    The primary reason I feel compelled to post a review is to share something that I find extraordinarily amusing about Hotel Le Marais. You're going to make fun of me, but I don't care. I'm easily amused. Check it out: each of the guest rooms has a lit up panel outside the door, where you will find... a doorbell! Why this is necessary for a hotel room (especially a boutique hotel with tiny, adorable guest rooms) is beyond me. However, I am very thoroughly a fan. In case you hadn't guessed.

    In addition to the doorbell outside each room, on the inside you've got two buttons. One to indicate Do Not Disturb, and the other one to request housekeeping. Just make sure you press the right button!

    Perfect hotel choice.  Very modern with huge beds. Crisp white linens.  A super cute courtyard with a heated saltwater pool.  A hip bar.  Warm continental breakfast.

    The best part was great customer service.  Any thing we needed they were happy to take care of for us.  Our room was very spacious and clean and we had a great view of the courtyard.  Checking in and out was no problem at all.  The rooms were also very quiet, which was much appreciated.

    Definitely a nice retreat from the craziness of Bourbon Street, while still being close enough to the action.

    I stayed at Hotel Le Marais (roughly lu-maray) for four nights in May.  It's hard to say, but worth the stay.

    This hotel has a great location between Bourbon and Royal on Conti (cont-eye) right in the center of the Quarter.  I loved being so close to everything.  Despite its proximity to the action, the hotel is very quiet inside.  And although it has been open for over a year, don't be surprised if cab drivers don't know where it is.

    As you walk in off the street you enter a small, very modern looking lobby.
    Although we didn't arrive until after 3PM, our room was not ready.  They gave us a coupons for free drinks at the bar while we waited.  (This was in addition to the free drinks that they give to all guests, which we also received.)  So although it had been a long trip, we were happy to start our drinking vacation immediately.

    The room was nicely sized with plenty of room for the king size bed.  There was still room to walk around with a small desk and a lounging chair as well.  The TV was large and new, but the channel selection was bare minimum... not even the obligatory HBO that you usually find at hotels.

    The bed was comfy with a luxurious mattress and nice pillows.  The A/C was centralized or hidden so we didn't have to hear some loud fan cycling on and off all night.  This is very important to me as I am constantly awakened by those wall units.  The digital thermostat allowed me to easily specify the temperature that I wanted.  Unfortunately, the A/C duct was on the wall directly next to the bed and a breeze blew down on to it (and me) causing cold and hot cycles as it cycled on and off.  I wish there had been a way to redirect air to achieve a more even temperature.

    The bathroom was pretty tiny, but that is typical for hotels in this price range.  It was clean and modern looking.  I didn't like the shower.  The half wall was just plain ridiculous. It was impossible not to get water everywhere and the fact that I even had to try was proof that they need to fix this problem.  In the meantime, I determined that I could keep the main floor from getting flooded by rolling up a towel and laying it on the threshold to redirect the water back into the shower.

    The sliding door on the bathroom is a great way to save space, but it is kind of loud when you need to get up in the middle of the night to return some of those Hurricanes back to nature and you don't want to wake up your partner.  It also needs a better handle.

    The wi-fi was free but you had to do the password thing.  I wasn't getting a very strong signal with my Android phone on the fourth floor, but it was generally usable.

    In the mornings they serve a continental breakfast in the bar area.  There are the usual cereals, fruit and a couple of hot items, but nothing fantastic.  I always had plans for brunch, so I usually just had a cup of coffee and a pastry out by the pool to start the day, before going out for the real culinary treats that New Orleans has to offer.

    Overall I enjoyed my stay at Hotel Le Marais.  Although there are a few things that I wish they would improve, I would recommend this hotel.

    Based on others' reviews, I requested a courtyard-facing (as opposed to Bourbon-facing) room on a high floor which was quiet as promised... except for the noise from a heating vent that ran alongside one of our walls. You know how a dripping faucet can drive you crazy? The noise from the vent was sort of like that - not super loud, but increasingly annoying. Not enough to wake me up, but enough to KEEP me up. (This is room #512, by the way.)

    After two nights I asked the front desk if anything could be done (while apologizing profusely - I felt like such a whiner) and they switched us to #509 a few doors down - identical but sans noise. Best possible outcome - they even moved our luggage for us while we were at dinner. The new room was by the ice machine, but that noise is much less frequent and more tolerable.

    There were also other touches that showed the staff cared - the toaster at the continental breakfast area wasn't working, and was replaced the following morning. A no-brainer, perhaps, but we all know you can't always assume that sort of thing will be taken care of.  The hotel is also very safe - your room key is required to access the elevator. There's also a little system of buttons inside the door of each room to indicate whether you want housekeeping to come, or whether you don't want to be disturbed.

    In summary, the rooms and common areas are very clean, modern and comfortable. The staff is super friendly and helpful, and the value is great given the convenient location.

    At $200+ per night with taxes and ect, I was expecting to sleep like a baby and have wonderful, relaxing stay. My first impression was that this is a very nice hotel, located in the heart of the French Quarter (on Conti near Royal, one block from Bourbon St). It is in an older building that was remodeled to look more hip, modern (with excessive use of colored lighting and velvet chairs). We stayed on the 3rd floor, when we opened the room door we both noted the strong smell of mildew in the room. No heat was on in any of the hallways, so in December this can get cold. There was a heated pool in the courtyard but it is awkwardly located near the Vive bar, which did not make me want to go in. No room service offered, no in-room beverages, no mini fridge, no spa, no snacks and no restaurant. I also noticed our bathroom was fairly dirty, the cleaning staff never cleaned the shower walls or the frosted glass between the shower and toilet which looked filthy. The valet parking for $34 per day was horrible and half the time the valet reserved space was being occupied by someone else, mostly deliveries or people temporarily stopping to pick someone up. I did not sleep well the whole time we stayed here, there was a weird, loud grinding noise most of the night and I kept having horrible, violent nightmares. I don't often have such bad nightmares and it made me question the idea of a haunting or ghost as I have heard the French Quarter has a history of.

    I accidentally left a toiletry bag in the room, asked about it a hour later after we checked out and was told "we did not find anything in your room" but I am positive I left a small bag full of makeup in the room. Annoyed by this, nobody asked for my contact info incase they did find the bag, just the smug response.

    I will be in NOLA in the near future but I will not stay here again.

    This is a wonderful place in the heart of the French Quarter. The place is silent inside no matter what is going on in the street.  It is just a few steps from most FQ attractions.  But the main reason I'm writing today is that when I wanted to start the day in a cafe two blocks away it was raining. The person at the front desk gave me the address of Walgreens to buy an umbrella - then offered me her own umbrella when she heard I just needed it for a short walk. That was very nice.

    Cute little boutique hotel, updated in 2009 -it boasts clean lines and modern furnishings.  Let me emphasize the cute little:  ceilings are low, corridors are narrow, rooms are tiny, showers are shoulder width.  But hey, it adds to the genuine French quarter feel. The wait for one elevator might take longer than a trek up the stairs.  Quality and location, not size, set this place apart.

    Almost all bases are covered with the complimentary breakfast, although I was half hoping they would have a soy/almond milk, it was plenty of food to get me rolling for the day.

    Only item I found missing throughout the hotel were recycling containers.  Perhaps this alone would add a star.

    I'm going to take a minute out of my oh-so-busy morning (yeah right) to inform fellow yelpers about a nice little boutique hotel in the Quarter. I haven't stayed a night here but I will soon.

    I had a pleasant evening last night at the hotel bar Vive. It's not really a hip bar (only due to the lack of customers) but it does offer hotel guests and locals a cool place to have a few drinks. Alex is a friendly and cool bartender there. The bar is clean and trendy. Had a great time hanging out with some tourists from NYC. Check it out if you're in the area.

    Great Location! Great Staff (Afternoon & Evening staff were so helpful)! Clean & modern. Very trendy looking on the inside and super clean. Great bath products and we always had ample fresh towels. Bed was comfortable but a few of the pillows were huge and in  the way (first world problems)

    For the location, relative quiet environment and price, this place can't be beat.

    *Although the hotel is designed to keep out the sound from outside (bourbon street & drunkards) it was not designed to be that quiet in the interior. Starting around 7am you could hear doors slamming and people shuffling around. If you are a light sleeper make sure to bring ear plugs.

    The bar here is pretty nice, the bar tender was very helpful and outgoing, they make cool drinks and have bizarre liquors (cucumber infused vodka?!?)

    Would totally recommend this place to anyone.

    Last night here with my husband and I have to rave about how great this hotel has been. They allowed us to check in early on day 1. Also gave us 2 free complimentary drink vouchers to their bar for any drink we wanted. Super friendly staff, always greeted us when we entered and left each day. Very clean rooms which were pretty spacious.  House keeping was spot on when we allowed them in. Each morning we had a complimentary breakfast which was delicious and filling to start the day. The gym was sufficient for the size. I got some running in ;) all in all... worth the $$ and I would definitely stay here again. Perfect location! !!

    Positives: it was absolutely SILENT in our room even though the hotel really is right in the thick of it. And the courtyard/patio is likewise quiet and pleasant. The room was comfortable and clean and I appreciated the magnifying mirror (and was befuddled by the handicap shower--which was just part of the bathroom, so that water went EVERYWHERE--but it was kind of a novelty, and putting lots of towels on the floor solved that problem).
    Negatives: I could have sworn there was a room service option (and the phone even has a button for "in room dining." But no, there's no room service--no food on the premises at all except for the free (acceptable, standard hotel fare) breakfast. There aren't even vending machines for soda pop or snacks. So that was a surprise. So was the heated saltwater pool, which looks lovely in the photos but is the size of a large bathtub (I never saw anyone in it). The room, as I say, was comfy and quiet--but not pretty/funky as shown in the photos.
    All in all, it was fine--more than adequate. Would I stay here again? Maybe not. But I'm not sorry I did, this once.

    This place is great. The atmosphere is very welcoming and modern. The courtyard area is very relaxing. Great place to sit with a drink and relax.
    The rooms are always clean and the staff helpful and friendly. For us this is the place to stay in the French quarter. It is within walking if everything but once you are in the hotel you feel like you are in a quiet relaxing hotel away.

    This hotel follows through where many others try and fail. Hotel Le Merais gives off a modern, chic vibe and it executes on all the details - from the interactive touch screen guide in the lobby to the lit bar to all the decor (tiled shower, lighted room numbers, fancy furniture, etc). I would compare it to a Kimpton. We got the romance package which included chocolate covered strawberries and champagne. The champagne was cava which was a great surprise and the strawberries were delicious. Special thanks to Pierre who was very helpful and accommodating!

    Amazing service oriented hotel! From the outside, it doesn't look like much. The kind of blink and you will miss it exterior. One small awning is all the Conti St. exterior boasts. Once you step through the doors you are transported into a very classy and modern interior. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated as valued guests and the staff went above and beyond.
    We arrived at 9:30am fully aware we were hours before check in and expecting that our room would not be ready, to our surprise it was! The bellhop took our bags up to the room and upon getting there we realized the room was not the courtyard view we hag paid for. Back down to the front desk. In a matter of two minutes and numerous apologies, we were given our courtyard facing room. The staff were so friendly,  accommodating, and kind!!
    I'm always anxious about room cleanliness when I travel, and as soon as I opened the door you could tell this room was freshly cleaned. I mean spotless!!!
    We had planned to do a city tour, but hadn't decided which, so we asked the front desk for help. Pierre at the front desk recommended a tour, called and made the reservation for us, and even got us a discounted rate. He contacted the Mardi Gras World shuttle floor us, and even arranged for a car service(with taxi rates) to take us to the airport. While Pierre stood out to us for his amazing service, he is just part of a whole staff that is helpful and accommodating.
    The hotel is also perfectly located in The French Quarter and it is extremely easy and convenient to walk around. In addition it is just a few walkable blocks to Canal St. and the Canal and St. Charles streetcars.
    This hotel will be my first choice on my next trip to NOLA.

    Modern and classy boutique hotel. And although our Strange True Tour guide said buildings in the French Quarter were all haunted, we lucked out on obvious creepy stuff here. Our room was on the second floor, very quiet and comfortable. The service is topnotch- people were very nice and easy to talk to. People in New Orleans in general were very nice and had kind hospitality. I enjoyed the courtyard and daily breakfast. This hotel was close to everything, but away enough from the loud, drunken Bourbon St. There were several cafes, restaurants, and shops within the hotel perimeter so we always had stuff to check out. We had parked our car with the valet (located across the stress with Royal Sonesta Hotel- which that service was only so-so because the valet guy did not give us our ticket when we had checked in, he got his tip though), but we really did not have any use for it until we left.   We also tried their hotel lounge called VIVE!- great drinks, cool bartender.

    Food tip: If you stay here, walk across the parking garage onto Bienville St, make a right, and try Restaurant R'evolution (I think it's actually ground floor of Royal Sonesta). They have the best gumbo in all of Nola.  Also, two doors down from the hotel is Oceana Grill- gumbo, poboys, and hurricanes. The Copper Monkey next door opens til 6am- they too have awesome drinks. YUM!

    Wonderful location in the French Quarter. Away from the Bourbon Street noise, but walking distance to all that Bourbon Street fun as well as the River Walk and the delicious Cafe Du Monde. Courteous, polite, and professional staff - especially Pierre and Irma at the front desk, they were informative and amazing! Our room was so clean and looked out into the pretty courtyard. The decor looks pretty modern, so there have been renovations since some previous negative comments made. Free continental breakfast, salt water pool, 2 free drinks, nice workout room, and free wifii. Definitely would go back to this hotel!

    The craziness of Bourbon street is well hidden in this modern and trendy hotel just a few feet away from Bourbon.  The place is small, only having one elevator, a Jacuzzi sized swimming pool, an 8 seating bar, and workout room the size of a bedroom.  But don't let this deter you at all.  It is packed full of greatness especially for this area.  Everything is renovated and service is great.  Besides, they have a pretty darn good complimentary breakfast every morning which is great after you have been on Bourbon Street all night and just want to eat then take another nap before you drink yourself into a stupor again.  My only complaint is their sucky Wi-Fi!  Like it really, really sucked!

    I highly recommend this hotel!

    I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for a few days before Thanksgiving break this year and was impressed with the property as well as the service. Great location - bang in the middle of the French Quarter, neighboring Bourbon St, and walking distance to most attractions the city offers. Parking is valet and paid but that is expected in the area. The staff were the most courteous - be it the reception or the bar. Unfortunately they do not have a full service restaurant onsite but they do serve a simple breakfast and the staff there were real nice as well. The decor and interiors here are very different from any of the chain hotels. My room was comfortably furnished, on one of the higher floors and overlooking the saltwater pool/outdoor bar area, which, by the way, is very convenient for entertaining any friends that visit. I have stayed in many hotels and must say special mention to the iron boxes provided in the rooms. I've had disastrous results with steam irons on other properties but this one here worked great. Overall, a great location, lovely service, fantastic amenities, would love to go back again, and highly recommend your next stay here if you are considering a convenient hotel.

    Great experience. Location was good, breakfast in the morning was nice but could have used some variety from day to day. Staff was great but when we came to check in our room wasn't ready for 3 or 4 hours and after traveling all day it was a little annoying. Other than that we enjoyed out stay and loved the pool. I would recommend this hotel for sure. Stay with confidence. I feel like their flaws are temporary as they're still getting some renovations in order.

    I haven't got to Stay at this hotel but want to! Here's the problem people if you are coming for a special event like a music festival they take 1 night full deposit and don't give it back if you cancel at anytime before 30 days!!!! if you cancel after 30 days they take payment in full for the whole stay and don't refund anything!

    We come every year to FQF or Jazz Fest and stay at small Boutique hotels and they have Full refunds for 30 days prior and even 72 Hours. out a 10 rooms we may loose 1 or 2 tops in our group as people have to cancel a few days or a week before because a kid gets sick or some unavoidable problem.

    Every time I do come for a festival or event or something last minute I can't find a hotel room anywhere. Good new orleans hotels don't have problems filling rooms at Festival times!

    Le Marais and your other properties look great but you are loosing a lot of people that would try you out if you had a better cancelation policy like so many other small hotels in the Quarter.

    Stayed at Le Marais last Thursday to Sunday...  It was one of the best hotel stays I've ever had...  A magical oasis from the bustle and craziness of Bourbon street. The public spaces were very clean, bright, inviting and comfortable.  The rooms were also clean and super quiet. We were even next to the ice machine and I never remember hearing it during our 3 nights.  Also thrilled that I had an iron that actually worked well!  (Been problem for me lately at hotels)... The housekeeping service folks were super polite, prompt and thorough. Pierre at the front desk was courteous, helpful, friendly and so much fun to banter with.  He also never steered us wrong with recommendations and suggestions on food, nightlife and directions to places.  

    Our favorite part of the experience was the pool... we'd sit, dip our feet in and enjoy some drinks from the "Vive" bar just inside.  Our bartender for most of the experience was Olga.  She was sweet, kind, professional, attentive and did an excellent job of keeping our drinks full and even coming outside to check on us and bring us our beverages.  She too was very knowledgable of the local attractions & food and just a  great all-around conversationalist.  It is apparent that the staff takes great pride in their work and their hotel. Being a boutique hotel, you'll pay commensurately, but absolutely fair and worth every penny.  In all... My girlfriend and I didn't want to leave and we are already talking about coming back.  Thanks so much for a wonderful hotel experience!

    This hotel is less than a block from Bourbon but once you enter it you wouldn't know that.   The lobby is quaint but well appointed.   The staff is friendly and the room are much larger than anticipated.   The free breakfast and heated salt water pool are great.   There are only 64 rooms total in this hotel so the noise is at a minimum.

    Give it a shot,  you will love it.

    The best boutique hotel in NOLA. Just checked out this morning after a 2 night stay here. The holiday package is worth the $189 value. Free valet, continental breakfast, welcome cocktail and wi-fi. The hotel is about 500ft from Bourbon St. The bar inside, VIVE, is small but quaint for the hotel guests.

    Really really enjoyed our stay here during a long weekend visit! Fantastic location... Between Bourbon and Royal, without any of the noise. Very friendly staff, from front desk to doorman. The hotel offers really nice, simple breakfast, coffee /tea all day and the bartender at vive is very good! Grab a Bloody Mary before you head out! The rooms are clean, well appointed and spacious enough, nothing extreme. The hotel must have been recently renovated or built as it is in a lovely old building but is brand new on the inside! The nice surprise is the small salt water pool and sunny courtyard that offers a place to relax before or after the craziness!
    I'd definitely stay here again and recommend!

    From the start, we were promptly greeted by Mr. E. Pierre at the front desk. He was very friendly, even when we asked for a room along the inside courtyard. The hotel seemed to be fully booked, so it took him a little work to find us a quiet room. We asked a question about being a STASH rewards member, which he didn't know the answer to, but he told us he'd find out and let us know later. Lo and behold, he not only remembered us the next day, but he also remembered to find out the answer to our question.

    Pierre is a true gem at this hotel. He always greeted us and took the time to make friendly conversation to see how our stay was going. He would even recognize when something was on our mind and always had an answer to it. When we asked about how to get to the Laura and Oak Alley plantations, he not only suggested a great tour company, but also gave us $20 total off the booking. This was the best deal we found, even while scouring the internet and walking around Bourbon Street.

    Pierre wasn't the only great staff member. We made it to breakfast one morning, and the two ladies helping out were very nice and attentive. They always made sure there was hot coffee and that everything was fully stocked, even when it was 10 minutes to closing down breakfast. We thought it would be a simple continental breakfast, but there was actually hot food! Bacon and eggs! Crispy, yummy, bacon!

    The room itself was nice. It didn't have the two purple pillows as pictured, and was smaller than I thought it would be. While walking to the elevator, I saw a couple rooms getting serviced and noticed that they were much bigger. I realize that I got a smaller room though since I did ask for a quieter location and that was the only room left not facing the main street. It was nice that they offered complimentary bottled water as well.

    Overall, I really have no complaints about this hotel, and thought I was given outstanding service. The location of the hotel couldn't be better. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all friends and family!

    I stayed at the LeMarais as a finale to a motorcycle trip down the Mississippi River from St. Paul.  The customer service was outstanding and everyone was extremely friendly and accommodating.  Mr. Pierre and the front desk staff, Bull, the doorman, and my bartender Olga all went above and beyond to make me feel valued and welcome.

    I can't say enough about the friendliness, professionalism, and commitment to providing a first class experience.

    Spent 5 nights here for my 40th birthday last August. After spending a lot of time deciding between this property and the Hotel Mazarin (one of their sister properties), I finally settled on the Le Marais because I got a great rate on a double queen with balcony. This property did not disappoint. I was initially concerned about the proximity to Bourbon Street - it's only 1/2 a block away - but the debauchery felt very far away upon entering the property. Our balcony room was on the second floor facing Conti Street. My sister had a lot of fun talking to our neighbors at the Royal Sonesta while they were out on their balcony. Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons, starting with the PROS:
    - Proximity to everything in the French Quarter that I wanted to check out
    -Courteous staff
    -Modern decor, in the lobby as well as the room
    -Clean, well-maintained property
    -Free wi-fi
    -Complimentary drink at the on-site bar
    -Complimentary breakfast every day
    -Spa water in the bar area. This was a welcome treat upon coming in from the heat & humidity every day
    -Quiet room. Even though our room was right across from the elevator and adjacent to the stairwell, we never experienced any problems with noise.
    -The property felt very secure. We had to use our room keys to access the main entrance after hours and the elevator at all times

    -One small elevator on the property. Since we were on the 2nd floor, thus wasn't a big deal at all.
    -SLOW wi-fi. For me it was just a small annoyance, far from a deal-breaker
    -While I love that the shower had a door (hotel shower curtains creep me out), the design of the shower made it impossible to not get a lot of water on the floor outside of the shower stall
    -A little variety in the breakfast selection would have been nice. We were there Sunday through Friday, so it got a little tiresome after a few days. However, it's included in the room rate, so this wasn't a deal-breaker. Besides, the Cafe Beignet on Royal street is a very short walk away.

    As you can see, the pros far outweigh the cons; I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I forgot to mention in my pros that the Hotel Le Marais is also very close to the Erin Rose Bar, home of Killer Po Boys :)

    I'm returning to my beloved NOLA next week and this time will be staying at the Hotel Mazarin (better rates thus time around). I will try not to wait 5 months to post my review :)

    Clean, comfortable room,  friendly front desk and bell staff. Good location, around the corner from R'evolution, Bourbon Street and all the revelry.  A few blocks from NOLA, K-Paul's, and Jackson Square.  Lovely mini-pool and courtyard. On a quieter street. Rubbery eggs, tasteless and chewy cut fruit, just add water oatmeal is 'free'. Spotty Wi-fi, bring your cell phone because the in-room phones don't always work. Thin walls and doors, loud housekeeping staff, noisy carts rolling in the hall, and thread-bear, thin bath towels.

From my last minute spazz when I called them freaking out that we might need an early check in, to the goodbye and invitation to return; they could not have been any sweeter! They also provided a nice breakfast, it is more than the coffee and bagels/dried cereal I have come to expect when I hear the term "continental".  
    Lastly, the hotel bar was great and the pool is a lovely touch.
    My only issue was with the bed, the mattress was on it's last leg and as such I did not sleep very well during our stay.
    By night 4 I was very much looking forward to my own bed.  I'm sure that's not the case in all the rooms though, but it bears mentioning since that's the only thing keeping this from a 5 star stay.

    50'yards from Bourbon Street and minimal street notice for my sleep. Clean, Clean, Clean! Front Desk a breeze. Good bed, TV, shower and amenities. Bar ready to serve. Elevator slow. I needed cardio from stairs anyway. No Spa.

    I will definitely stay here again!

    First time here at this hotel, but I've been to NOLA multiple times.  I liked this hotel for several reasons:

    1)  boutique feel
    2) small and unassuming
    4) great location inside French Quarter
    5) non fussy
    6) breakfast included
    8) regular room....but clean, comfortable, good bedding
    9) little bar and courtyard area off lobby that was always kind of welcoming any time of day.

    Had a great stay!

    The staff is very polite, very helpful, funny & created a great atmosphere. The bar tender was hilarious to chat with & gave us some great tips for our stay.

    This is a great hotel if you're planning on going crazy on bourbon st, but want a quiet place to crash afterwards. So the going to bed by 3am crowd for this is perfect.

    If you're a premature old fart like myself, and you don't plan on blacking out every night you're here & plan on going to bed around 10pm or so, you're probably going to want ear plugs.

    Over all this hotel was a great place, with in walking distance of a lot of fun bars, restaurants & all the French Quarter stuff you could ever want to experience.

    The beds were very clean, very comfortable as was the entire hotel & the room.

    We would definitely recommend this spot for your trip to Nawlyns!
